Changes for Version 2.13.0:

Please note: For this release, the minimum required version of cmake is 3.6.0


  • [ECC-924] - GRIB2: Add support for encoding AROME and ALADIN fields
    Thanks to MeteoFrance

New Features/Improvements

  • [ECC-815] - Separate the Python bindings to a different package
    For Python 3 we no longer use SWIG. Please install the Python3 bindings by:   pip3 install eccodes-python.
    We are grateful to B-Open for their help.
    Note: Python 2 is unaffected (it is still SWIG based)

  • [ECC-240] - bufr_dump should be able to dump a given subset
    A new option "-S" is provided for bufr_dump to dump a given subset

  • [ECC-932] - bufr_dump: Add option to print expanded descriptors along with their keys and units
    A new option "-d" is provided for bufr_dump to dump the expanded descriptors

  • [ECC-342] - BUFR: Implement extraction of a time interval for uncompressed data
  • [ECC-913] - Tools: Add gts_count

  • [ECC-930] - GRIB: Reduce size of reduced lat/lon sample files by removing bitmap section
  • [ECC-931] - bufr_dump -p: print the key 'subsetNumber' (uncompressed data)

Bug Fixes

  • [ECC-735] - gts_ls memory fault
